't different is that as we heard senator schumer and others acknowledge, a very hard road to go to get actual legislation passed here. now i think more likely that we would see something like universal background checks or this gun trafficking measure that's going to be introduced by senator gillibrand and others, senator kirk in the next few days. hard to see senator feinstein's bill actually being enacted. and yet it is clearly true there is something different going on this time than in past incidents. >> yeah, to your point. dianne feinstein said it will be hard but you see people like joe manchin willing to work on some things. he's a touchstone for a lot of democrats who look to people who are supporters of gun rights. i'm wontderring when you have the people who do push back on certain parts of it and that does include joe manchin and people like harry reid who basically has said he's not superulatively supportive of the president's plan. let's put it that way. i'm wondering, ryan is this because they live in those gun states, they fear the nra? tell us about the difficulties of gettin
